    ABOUT ME

  • A car-guy with a drinking problem? A beer enthusiast behind the wheel?... Hmm, neither of those sound good... Actually I'm an avid gamer who enjoys nothing more than sitting in his easy-chair with the computer game going, watching some late-night TV with a cat in his lap... Good times, good times...
  • Automotive,Gaming,Homebrewing,Computers
  • Manager of Project Schedules, Taggart Global LLC
  • Jeff Knapp
  • Cuda-Challenger.com, Three Rivers Underground Brewers
  • I had done minor research into homebrewing and knew that kits were available, but just never took the next step. Then a coworker picked up a kit in preparation for Thanksgiving, and in telling me about it, helped me decide to get started myself.
  • I'm learning more and more about beers and the homebrewing hobby every day, so my goals and plans and ideas change constantly. All I know is I plan to have fun, and I've been doing that pretty well so far!

    PS, this link, second paragraph under copper, says I'd be fine using it in a jockey
    box.https://byo.com/stories/issue/item/1144-metallurgy-for-homebrewersA few paragraphs down it

    I'm confused as to how this is going to work out exactly. At CHI Company, you can get 2
    2-circuit cold plates (8x12") for about $75 each, but they don't come with fittings. Stainless
    Brewing has 25 ft...

    Well yes, it'll be a few hundred. I'm going to try to keep it from being a LOT of hundreds of
    dollars... :-)Nice thing is, my work "status" might get me some pretty neat custom parts...
    ...for free. M...

    It's taken me three weeks of nagging a Craigslist seller, but I finally went and picked up this
    little gem just the other day: a 16V "Kid Trax" SRT Viper ride-on car for kids. It doesn't
    run, and it ...

  • Posted in thread: Show Us Your Label on 02-27-2014 at 03:57 AM
    Been quite a while since I got to check this thread. Also been a while since I made some
    labels!This year I'm switching to a 5x3" label and moving away from the little neck sticker I
    used to work with...

    I agree except for the "extracting tannin flavors" part - how would extra sparges extract
    tannins?Still - how do you explain the math? I've read the three-part series on efficiency on
    HBT. My numbers ...

  • Posted in thread: Am I really understanding decoction correctly?! on 02-10-2014 at 09:53 PM
    I'd say yes - you can decoct anything. I've also done the quick draw-boil-return for the point
    of grabbing a few extra degrees.For bocks, it's a style thing, and a good judge like my buddy
    can pick up...

    Just an update here - I picked up a nice finishing hydrometer and a smaller test tube and a
    thief.I've been taking some final readings with both the hydrometer and the refractometer. I
    use an app call...

  • Posted in thread: Am I really understanding decoction correctly?! on 02-10-2014 at 01:12 AM
    Just a quick update - got a good buddy/fellow homebrew club member who lives nearby and is a
    master-certified BJCP judge. I took a sample as I was transferring from Primary to the keg for
    lagering and...
